Re: NFL Might Suspend Players for Violent Hits

i'm with matty on this one, i'm sure the nfl is just gettin their panties in a wad because there were some many bit hits and concussions all in one day. we will just have to see how it really is inforced this weekend. that said my biggest issue with what the nfl is trying to do is that it is all about the defense and safeties and lb's hitting people helet to helmet, but what about the offense. lavar was talkin about it today and he got pretty worked up but he brought up some really good points imo

1. a receiver isn't defenseless unless they themselves or their qb put them in that position. i mean when a receiver runs a cross route and the qb throws the ball the receiver has a choice to go up and get it or not. just ask tood pinkston, and desean jackson for that matter, anyone see his alligator arms at the end of the philly game when he was about to get pwned by laron?

2. what about when a rb truck sticks a db? like when landry got pwned. by the nfl rule that was an illegal hit because he struck him in the head with his forearm

my biggest beef is that the nfl doesn't really care that much about player safety, but they are concerned with high scoring games and an 18 game season, but i guess we'll see this weekend when fat al busts cutler up.

Don't forget that Portis was sandwich hit last year on MNF. Was there an Uproar over his Concussion?

I saw Birds chirping.

to my understanding, this rule only applies to defenseless players (receivers attempting to make a catch or what i just learned from the video, a punter running down the field on coverage).

landry could have gone helmet to helmet, forearm to helmet or shoulder to helmet on jacobs and vice versa.

when a player is an established runner, you can hit him in his head.

Re: NFL Might Suspend Players for Violent Hits

A RB is fair game, he's not defenseless when he's coming through the line, head down ready to strike.

Re: NFL Might Suspend Players for Violent Hits

I haven't been keeping up with this thread so I might be repeating some people here, but I REALLY wish we had a bye this week. I have a feeling the refs are going to go flag-crazy and every game with have an abundance of ticky tack penalties.

Re: NFL Might Suspend Players for Violent Hits

I really didn't notice much of a difference yesterday. I guess the great demise of the sport was a little over exaggerated.

Re: NFL Might Suspend Players for Violent Hits

Given how touchy the league has been, I'm surprised that didn't draw a fine.

Re: NFL Might Suspend Players for Violent Hits

seriously, thats a really good sign imo as to his mindset and being in the game instead of just going thru the motions.

really hope it continues.

Good point!

Watch the video again, he wasn't looking to hit someone - the Bear player just got in the way as Fat Al was running to take a seat on the bench.
